I managed to get a Waveshare sx1302 Hat running as a LoRaWAN gateway on a Raspi.
My problem now is that the packet forwarder always has to be started manually. I would like to automate this by booting the Raspi. Unfortunately I can’t find the right documentation that describes this.
Can anyone of you help here?
That would depend on your pi’s Linux install.
Most recent debian/raspbian type ones would probably need a systemd service.
Here’s an example of the service - notice it’s running a script that toggles the reset, not directly starting the packet forwarder
as root create /lib/systemd/system/ttn-gateway.service
Description=The Things Network Gateway
And then you need to activate it
sudo systemctl enable ttn-gateway.service sudo systemctl restart ttn-gateway.service
Your advice has helped
Thanks for the quick help
